The Goods in the Bad

Well, the dive conditions dropped off today. After a few 20m+ visibility days, the vis dropped to about 5m today thanks to a strong NW wind... BUT... this was one of my most successful photography days in a while. I'm pretty happy with the result, and here they are so I hope you enjoy...

Now, this below image isn't the greatest shot I've taken, but I was amazed at something I spotted in the shot while previewing it. It's a close up of a stonefish eye, and on the bottom left of the eye, is a tiny tiny tiny little fish. It may be hard to see, but I thought it was pretty cool.
